      Critics Consensus

      This remake of Planet of the Apes can't compare to the original in some critics' mind, but the striking visuals and B-movie charms may win you over.

      Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal My Homo sapiens brain was boggled by the movie's clumsiness, while my heart was chilled by the chance that otherwise mature members of my species might mistake this disjointed botch for summer entertainment. May 1, 2024 Full Review Manohla Dargis L.A. Weekly Wahlberg can’t obscure his incredulity at the words he’s made to speak or the sheer silliness of the whole thing. Without latex and a full-bodied shag there’s no hiding from this film. May 1, 2024 Full Review Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter While it's fun to revisit this nearly forgotten planet in the company of a master of movie magic, one gets the feeling that Burton never found a way to embrace this place and make it his own. May 1, 2024 Full Review Casey Chong Casey's Movie Mania Despite having Tim Burton on board, he seems to be more of a director-for-hire almost devoid of his distinctive filmmaking style. Rated: 2.5/5 May 10, 2024 Full Review Michael Sragow Baltimore Sun Not a remake but a jumbled revision that tumbles out as if from a piñata. Rated: 2.5/4 May 1, 2024 Full Review Steve Persall Tampa Bay Times Exactly what this mediocre summer movie season needs. Something fresher than dinosaurs and edgier than talking pets and cartoons. Something familiar enough to make us buy tickets, yet original enough to feel the money was well-spent. Rated: B+ May 1, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Mike M Absolute garbage. Leave it to Marky Mark to ruin a great series. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/16/24 Full Review Sebastian S Boring! this movie is just so boring. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/11/24 Full Review A S Doesn't come close to living up to the original. What a letdown. Easily Mark Wahlberg's worst movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Liam D Easy the worst Planet of the Apes movie even though with its amazing makeup and (Mostly) great cast. The movie is rather dull and has an insanely unintelligent ending Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Carol W Planet of the Apes Wahlberg edition pales in comparison to the thankfully later films and a few of the older ones. The Ape people are an ode to the older films where humans were used vs the newer films where they are animals in generally animal form, however computer generated. The plot was too elementary, and watching it this time around, Wahlburg’s character didn’t fit in. The original movie had more astronauts to start with and that made it better. Watching it helps you to appreciate the later films’ improvements in plot and animation. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Mario F Estoy viendo nuevamente esta película, Para mi, hay un gran error en #PlanetOfTheApes de Tim Burton. Los caballos. Me pueden explicar si en la nave Oberon llevaban caballos ademas de los enhanced apes y Semos? Hay algo que me perdí? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/18/24 Full Review Read all reviews
